All that Jazz

The 1959 novel Absolute Beginners describes modernists as young modern jazz fans who dress in sharp modern Italian clothes.
Not all Modern Jazz is "listenable" or "cool" enough to have that "Modernist Sound" but there are some cracking tunes, especially from the late 50´s and the 60´s.
Here´s ten to start with.
Alvin Cash and The Crawlers - Twine Time (1965)
B.B King -3 O'clock Stomp Aka Poontwangie (1962)
Dave "Baby" Cortez - Rinky Dink  (1962)
Dave Davani Four - The Jupe (1965)
George Stone -  Hole in the Wall  (1965)
Jr Walker & the All Stars -   Cleo's Mood (1966)
Mike Vickers - On the Brink (1965)
Terrell Prude - Frog-Eyes (1963)
The Young-Holt Trio - Wack Wack (1966)
Willie Mitchell  - 30-60-90 (1969)
